Action Medical Research organises a wonderful programme of cycling activities throughout the year to suit any level.
I would encourage all women who haven’t yet experienced the joys of cycling to take up the sport and sign up to one of the charity’s many events. Every mile you ride will help sick babies and children - so what better reason to go for it and get on your bike!”

Rochelle Gilmore is a renowned pro cyclist, motorsport enthusiast and former team manager.

Originally from South Sydney in NSW Australia, Rochelle travelled to Italy with the Australian Cycling Team/AIS when she was just 17, to pursue a career in cycling. In 2007 Rochelle bought a house and became an official resident of Northern Italy.

Rochelle’s first major achievement on two wheels was finishing 2nd in her age division at the ‘World BMX Championships’ before becoming a silver medallist at the Junior World Championships on the track. A string of 4 more silver medals at the elite World Championships and Commonwealth Games was to follow. Gilmore finished her cycling career with stage wins in the ‘Giro d’Italia’ and ‘Route De France’, 3 World Cup Victories (2 track/one road) and a Commonwealth Games title. 

Rochelle is delighted to be an ambassador for the Champions of Cyclesport dinner.
